I had the pleasure to meet Artist and Asterisk Gallery owner, Dana Depew today and became an immediate fan. 
He works in a wide range of media from sculpture to painting where he repurposes found objects as he sees fit. 

Found resting against the gallery wall were several of his Chenille Paintings.
He invited me to see more in the maze-like storage area below the gallery.

Dana loads heavy coats of paint onto vintage chenille bedspreads. 
The satisfying result is stiffened saturated plush tuffs color.

Thanks Dana for a great visit.
